Carefully Chosen Words Poem

Home » Blog » Carefully Chosen Words Poem

I’m participating in NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month). I’m writing a poem a day for the month of April and posting it here on my blog to share. Go to for more details and to view many more participating poets.

Carefully Chosen

Words, seemingly unimportant
Mean everything to me
Every line every sentence
Each syllable and phrase
A comma, that slight pause
In just the right place

A breath carry on
Sounds strung together
Erase, start again
Slowly, not to stutter
Carefully researched
Changed again, again

Thought out
Obsessed upon
Lost sleep, get it it right
Feelings expressed in prose
Till out of mind
